Worthy of a smile

I was driving home from work, coming up on the green in Andover center when I saw a sight that made me smile. There was a group of boys on the right side of the road, a single boy on the left. Two of them - one on each side - appeared to be playing a game of tug of war, pulling on a rope that crossed the road. They were intent, crouching down a bit, pulling, pulling.

I was already moving slowly on this residential street just outside of the town center, but I slowed a bit more before passing them. The rope? It was imaginary! That scene was deserving of a smile and a quick thumbs up to the perpetrators.
